Soundhole Clamps

About This Item

These clamps reach where others can't. Ideal for clamping bridges and braces through a soundhole.

Our popular soundhole clamps feature strong steel frames, light weight and slim profiles for multiple clamping through the soundhole of a classical or steel-string guitar. Ideal for clamping bridges and braces through a soundhole. Available in four lengths. Leveling screw gives extra support for clamping bridges and braces. The 7", 9" and 11" models have a special leveling screw to help support the clamp's weight and prevent unwanted bending of the soundboard.

The shorter clamps give increased clamping coverage at the guitar's bridge and shoulder areas.

Our soundhole clamps also have knurled thumbscrews, height-adjustable jaw screws for clearance of internal braces, and jaw feet that swivel to conform to uneven surfaces (maximum opening is 1-7/8"). Each clamp is 1/2" (12.7mm) wide.

Prevent dents: Check out our Soundhole Clamp Cauls that snap onto the feet of these clamps for a larger clamping footprint, padded surface, and grooves that make it easier to clamp on braces.

A GENIUS Clamp

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I used this clamp straight out of the box. perfect for a dry run of replacing a bridge. Just clamp the bridge in place and then clamp the middle to the guitar top, using cauls, of course, then removed the clamp screw on the bridge and removed the bridge for gluing. The middle screw keeps the clamp in place ready for final installation of the bridge.
A fantastic invention and makes bridge replacing easy as pie.

Great guitar tool.

Well made tool. This tool seems only to fit guitar sound holes. It did not fit mandolin f holes! Other than that it is well made, good clamp.

Perfect for positioning bridge

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Leveled very nice Used these after bridge blew off due no doubt to much fiddling with bridge positioning when using my cam clamps. Was able to maintain bridge position with these clamps I did think they didn't look like quality of other products and do question what clamping force one can achieve , but they performed well

non alignment

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I bought many of these hoping they would be better then my old Herco clamps... not really... when I use the curved caul to glue a brace etc.. the clamp un aligns its self to the top and falls over..had this happen to other glue ups as well... not good..you can bend them left and right..not what I need for stable clamping.

How can anyone think these are good???

Terrible idea for a clamp. There is no strength to the clamps at all. The so called "leveling" foot just adds insult to injury. Love stew mac, but these are a huge misfire!

Excellent clamps

By
(Customer's Reviews)


These clamps are great. Light and strong.
I use them for guitar & uke bridges (tenor size & up)

They are great for repairs too (as the pic shows!).

The smallest 5" clamp is too long for a Concert uke.
Id love see a 4" version too.

Essential Soundhole Clamps

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I find the 7" clamps really great. I always use them with the padded cauls to prevent marking. When I first received them I was worried that they looked a little flimsy. However they proved to be perfectly adequate and give plenty of clamping pressure. I may invest in some of the larger sizes soon too.

TIGHTEN DOWN ALL HATCHES

(Customer's Reviews)


These clamps are ideal for having to re-glue and clamp down an acoustic guitar bridge. Fit easily in through the sound hole; and using the upper middle screw down insures a level and precise clamping.
